New Year, New Charity

We understand the importance of creating impact and giving back to the community. Each year KWIB partners with a local charity or non-profit organization: a large portion of all membership fees, event ticket sales, and special fundraising goes directly to the organization. For the 2017-2018 KWIB season, we are honored to have partnered with Karis Support Society.

We are approaching the end of this 2017-2018 year with our 5th Annual Charity Event and Wine Tour.  We are looking for a charity or non-profit organization to sponsor for the 2018-2019 year and would love your input!  The season will start this September!

If you know of a charity or non-profit organization that could use the support of Kelowna Women in Business please nominate them at [email protected].
